TSgt is an abbreviation for the enlisted rank of Technical Sergeant. It is a middle management position where expectations become higher, greater authority is given, and higher standards become the norm. A TSgt is usually being groomed at this point to assume even more responsibility as the next higher grade, Master Sergeant or MSgt. People who make TSgt are usually career-Air Force who have learned a particular trade quite well, or have transitioned into a new kind of career field and are making inroads to learning the required "corporate knowledge". TSgt is one of the more difficult ranks to achieve in some Air Force career fields, but once a person is promoted to this rank, his or her peers are there to help transition into middle management type work.
